Denzel Washington justly earned an Oscar nomination for his passionate portrayal of African American activist "Malcolm X" (1992). Director, co-writer and co-star Spike Lee traces the famed orator's personal odyssey from zoot suit-wearing gangster to prison inmate to Nation of Islam spokesman and political lightning rod. This epic-length biopic co-stars Angela Bassett, Delroy Lindo, Al Freeman, Jr. and Ossie Davis and features a climactic cameo from Nelson Mandela.
